    Oh No...The boys' school district just closed...We will not be alone today.

    Bill suggested that we give them full computer and game privileges to keep them busy. lol

    Of course, our eldest (17) totally knows what we are doing when we go take a "nap".

    Great job on this last week, Pebbles. I find the change from the salt very interesting.

    Enjoy your day off & weekend. Great observations for this past week. I have no doubt that you will meet your goals.

    For the uneducated, what is an ideal FBS range?

    typically anything less than 100 is good for a "true" fasting blood sugar.... if you have eaten within 12 hours of the test, I think anything less than 120-150 is "acceptable".... now I sufffer from CRS and am going from memory here, so don't quote me on this...

    NW, I think Paula is reaching for the 50 range for cancer prevention as per Dr. Seyfried in Dr. Ede's blog, but FBS would normally be considered good if it is below 100.

    Paula, my kids sleep past noon on weekends so we have no worries there! And anytime they are both out of town (which is easier now that one is away at college) that works well. It will be interesting to see what happens when my youngest goes off to college and we are empty nesters.

    Nameless Wonder,

    ssn679doc has it right. Anything under 100 is considered a healthy FBS.

    Like demuralist said, I was trying for a lower than normal FBS, between 55-65 for cancer fighting benefits based on Dr Seyfried's research. Anything under 70 is considered hypoglycemic and generally not desirable.

    Dr. Cate Shanahan says that 100 might actually be a bit high, and sets the bar at less than 90. FWIW.

    Ok, some thoughts on protein.

    I have done 9 days at the 65 gram level and have seen no marked change in my FBS. I think in order to reach Dr. Seyfreid's ideal FBS level, the second part of the formula has to be low calories. Dr. Ede got to the ideal FBS and the 4.0mmol ketone level (and was miserable) eating around 1000 cals and 50-60g protein. I do not see that as smart or necessary for me at this time.

    **Dr, Ede has not yet posted this week's update...wonder why.

    This week I gained 1.5% body fat, but still lost weight. My fluid intake was steady. This tells me I lost lean body mass, not fat. (Ddraig Goch, I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.)

    It is my plan to drop dairy this week. Unfortunately, dairy is a big fat contributor in my diet. I am going to allow my protein to go up to 20% and fat to go back down to 75%. Carbs will stay at 5%. I still plan to eat to my BMR (1746) as a minimum calorie level.

    Here is a link to the protein levels recommended by several NK gurus. Unfortunately, they do not agree.
